Gay Mitchell MEP visits St Clare’s

On Friday 19th April Gay Mitchell MEP visited our school. We were delighted to welcome Mr Mitchell to our school. Mr Mitchell is an MEP which means is is a Member Of The European Parliament. First of all Mr Mitchell planted a tree with 4th class. It was a Hazel tree. This type of tree comes from Ireland and it was given to the school by Native Woodland Trust.

Secondly Mr Mitchell spoke to the whole school in the hall about the European Union and he told us all about his job as an MEP.

Finally Mr Mitchell let us ask him loads of questions. 4th and 6th class were delighted to get the opportunity to ask him questions as they are in the middle of completing the Blue Star Project which is all about the European Union. He really helped them out by answering all of their questions! It was very exciting having an MEP visit our school and we really enjoyed the afternoon.
